Maybe Life is curious to see what you would do
With the gift of being left alive
How love how give
Have spread the higher purpose
And cut through all the shuck and jive
Its only natural
Maybe superstitious
To try to find the meaning
Of greed in the eyes
But sometimes we (get down on your knees)
But sometimes could ya
Sometimes yeah
And thank the whole world your the verse of god
For letting you
Live out the string
A little longer boy
Raise your voice and
Make a joyful noise
And a gaurentee
But if anything
Live out the string

now that a meteorite has fallen in the chair
You just got up to answer the phone
Will you live every moment
Like it just might be your last?
Or will you still just bitch and moan

fate is kind
Fate is creul
Its termanilly cool
And its random and eruption
In your groove
But sometimes get down on your knees

sometimes baby
Sometimes could ya get down on your knees
And find yourself a deeper groove

live out the string
A little longer boy
Raise your voice
And make a joyful noise
Ain't a gauruntee
But if anything
Live out the string
The string

bridge
Who knows if we had angels on our shoulders
That night with the devil in the street
Who's knows if it means we have more work to do
But hey baby don't the air taste sweet

hey baby, don't the air taste sweet

get down on your knees
And live out the string
Live out the string
Yeah yeah yeah
Get down on your knees
Live it out baby

Maybe life is curious to see what you would do
With the gift of being left alive

    General CommentThere's no question to me this song was written after he survived being shot in the head after a carjacking attempt on his van on the way back from a show. It was a miracle that the bullet did not penetrate his skull. It's about him realizing how lucky he was to still be living and appreciating life and living it to it's fullest. It makes you realize sometimes how lucky we are to just be living every day
